New Program Release! MOB201: Intro to Mobility


Introducing the second component of our Mobility progression: MOB201: Intro to Mobility.

Now available in your PLT4M account on your Programs page.

In MOB101 we explored End-Range stretching. Now, we’re taking mobility a step further by introducing Self-Myofascial Release with the help of a foam roller and lax ball. See more details below!

 

Program Description

In this introduction to mobility, we aim to introduce some key mobility principles and techniques, with the goal of moving beyond simple "flexibility" and "stretching". While we love stretching, it is only one piece of the larger mobility puzzle. To truly improve our mobility, we must equip ourselves with more advanced techniques like Self-Myofascial Release. Additionally, we review the concept of "Active Recovery", and the role it plays in our mobility.
